Virtual meetings are a proven way to lock in time and cost savings and also drive revenue growth with lower cost of sales.
Well, you’ve got a couple of options if your goal is to deliver professional, engaging, scalable online meetings.
- Peer-to-peer meetings of up to say 30 people – AKA ‘online meetings’; and/or
- Online seminars, usually called ‘webinars,’ where 100s and 1000s of participants can attend and interact with presenters and panelists
The wonderful thing about online meetings is they are so accessible. Some or all of the people attending aren’t in the same location and can connect in a common virtual environment as long as they have access to broadband. They can get ‘amongst it’ using their desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone – virtual meetings are that flexible.
Think of these as business discussions amongst peers conducted online. They are superb for everything from formal board meetings through to informal brainstorming sessions. Read more about Online Meetings.
These are similar to online meetings but often on a much larger scale. Plus, attendees get a chance to continuously interact in the form of chat, polls, Q & A and surveys, which creates a superbly engaging environment for selling, training, comms, updates, thought leadership and more.
